Beta releases will be hosted in the repository below.
Important Note:
The version of AppRadio Extensions on the BigBoss repo in Cydia is not compatible with iOS 6/7 or the latest version of the AppRadio app (v2.0). It is an old version that will only work with v1.8.2 of the AppRadio app running on iOS 5.
Cydia Repository:

Install all of the dependencies.
Install the beta version of AppRadio Extensions.
Start the AppRadio app.
Launch an unsupported app from the menu. These can be added via the 'More Apps' setting.
The unsupported app should show on the phone screen and the radio.
Control the iPhone app from the radio.
Press on the black bars to the left or right of the app window to go back to the AppRadio app menu.

Other Issues:
If you have problems getting back to a normal state, try killing the AppRadio app from the task switcher. If that doesn't work, reboot the device.

Note: Please be aware that this is a beta version that could error, crash, cause your phone to become unresponsive, etc. Do not install it unless you are prepared for these things to happen.
